Okay, I'm not going to make this an Academy Awards–style speech, but let me thank just a few people. First, I want to thank my business school and tax professors at Central Washington University, the University of Washington, and Golden Gate University. Next, thanks to the business clients who've given me the honor of working with them and teaching me about their businesses and industries. Finally, I want to thank all my friends and colleagues at Wiley Publishing, Inc., who gave me the distinct honor of writing not only this book but also Quicken For Dummies (14 editions) and QuickBooks For Dummies (9 editions). I also want to say a specifi c thanks to Bob Woerner, my acquisitions editor; Linda Morris, my project and copy editor; and David Ringstrom, who performed the technical edit.
